Emergency services were called to a fast-food outlet at the Pit Stop Ashmore complex about 10.30am on Tuesday.

Queensland Ambulance Service senior operations supervisor Neil Stead said the worker and one of his colleagues were in the electricity room when the accident took place.

“The board either short-circuited or an incident occurred where both people received flash burns,” he said.

The men, aged in their 30s, suffered significant injuries as a result of the explosion.
